Welcome to Blogger Q+A Friday, the newest feature to hit jodie noted. On the last Friday of every month I will publish a Q+A session with some of my (and your) favorite bloggers. I love getting to know bloggers on a more personal level and think this will be a great way to do just that. To kick it off I will be posting Q+As every Friday during the month of October and a double dose of Q+A today. So settle in and get ready for some goodies.
I couldn't think of a better way to start this feature than with these two blogging sisters. After I started reading their blog I emailed them to tell them how obsessed with it I was. Seriously...nerd alert. But they are the cutest things ever and their posts are always a blast to read. There is a catch though: they are headless. Anonymity is a huge part of their blog and it kills me in the best way possible. Without further ado, I am pleased to introduce S + W, the girls of The Pretty Life Anonymous.
We are S and W and we write the faceless blog, The Pretty Life Anonymous. We are just a couple of sisters who love a well tailored blazer and a great pair of skinny jeans, but aren’t about to drain the savings account to get them, because we think pretty things are lovely but they just aren’t what life is really about, ya know? So, you can find us scouring sales racks and clipping coupons, and that’s how we like it. We aren't fashionistas, we just like truly affordable clothes and pretty things.
What is your name? S.
Blog address: prettylifeanonymous.blogspot.com
Where is your favorite place to relax? If my house is clean—on my couch with a blanket, some M&Ms and/or popcorn, and a movie.
What do you do to vent anger? Let it out on my husband (poor thing), clean, listen to music, or exercise
What are your most loved comfort foods? Cereal, cheese, and anything rich and chocolate-y.
What is your guilty pleasure CD or song? Meet in the Middle by Diamond Rio (I start walkin’ your way, you start walkin’ mine. We meet in the middle…)
Do you have any bad habits? Sometimes I like to see how long I can go without showering… way gross, I know, but I work at home. Again, my poor husband…
Who would you hate to be stuck in a room with? Wanda Sykes. I do not think she is funny.
What characteristics do you love? Kindness, genuineness, warmth (someone who is welcoming and comfortable to be around), confidence in individuality
Do you sing in the car? YES. Always.
Who was you first movie star crush? I can’t remember who my very first one was, but I remember having really strong feelings for Nick Carter for years during my childhood.
Favorite beauty product? Oh goll, I am cheap, I buy what I can afford… but I use Maybelline Great Lash, Pond’s Dry Skin Cream, and Organix Coconut Milk Split Ends Mender religiously.
What are your favorite sounds? Husband’s key turning in the front door after I have been home alone all day, an oven timer going off because that means a treat is ready, or the Uncharted ring tone on my phone because that means someone in my family is calling me.
What is your favorite current fashion trend? Lace-up wedge booties. OBSESSED.
Who are your style icons? Olivia Palermo, Kendi, Rachel Zoe, and W J
What is your name? W.
Where is your favorite place to relax? IN MY BED with a good book. Or in ROSS or Chik-fil-a.
What do you do to vent anger? On my treadmill. Right now I am on a Friday Night Lights kick when I run and I watch it and get waaaay to into it and then I run faster. I think it’s all the hitting they do that show. WAY good for anger issues.
What are your most loved comfort foods? If I use Chik-fil-a to answer all of these questions will you judge me?
What is your guilty pleasure CD or song? Justin Beiber! I love the Beib’s. That is one talented child.
Do you have any bad habits? I am SO messy. Serious. If you saw how high the pile clothes in my spare bedroom was you would not be my friend. I also talk REALLY loud when I get excited. I fear my husband will be deaf by the time he is 35.
Who would you hate to be stuck in a room with? Kathy Lee Gifford! No thanks. That lady is CRAY-CRAY and belittling.
What characteristics do you love? Confidence, humility, and a sense of humor.
Do you sing in the car? No, I saaaaaaannnng in the car. I am seriously Beyonce in there.
Who was you first movie star crush? Picture it: It’s the end of Casper. Christina Ricci is sitting by herself at the Halloween party. A mysterious stranger comes down the stairs and takes her hand and they start to dance and she realizes it is CASPER AS A REAL BOY. He is a total fox. They dance some more and then kiss. That very scene, my friends, sealed within me a love of Devin Sawa from ages 12-16.
Favorite beauty product? I love Tresemme dry shampoo, Mabelline Great lash mascara, and my NYC eyelash curler. Those 3 things are really all you need.
What are your favorite sounds? My husband has a giggle that he keeps locked up unless he is watching Conan Obrien. That guy brings it out of him and it is hysterical. I also REALLY love listening to Brandi Carlile. I probably put one of her CD’s in every single day.
What is your favorite current fashion trend? I’m soooo glad that a more wide-legged trouser jean is so hip right now. I love my skinnies, but I feel like a great denim trouser can flatter anybody.
Who are your style icons? Kelly Frammell from the Glamouri, Lauren Conrad, and Michelle Obama.
Why did you start your blog and what do you hope your readers get from it? We started the blog because it seemed like there were all of these fashion bloggers who didn’t understand what it really meant to live on a budget. While they look amazing draped in JCrew and Anthro, that is not attainable for everyone, and you CAN still look fashionable without having to darken the doors of those pricey places. We hope that readers feel inspired to dress up and be frugal when they read our blog. And we hope that they laugh, too.
Thanks S and W! What a great way to kick this thing off. And thank you to everyone for reading! Now be sure to hop on over to The Pretty Life Anonymous and say hello!
